The Sounders did not really dominate the game, but were able to take advantage of Kelvin Leerdam's dvi shot, rather lucky, to open the score (57). In the game, Victor Rodriguez scored the second goal of a nice foot (76th) before Raul Ruidiaz (90th) crucified a Toronto team, yet offensive and persevering. Jozy Altidore, who was unsure of injury and finally started the game on the bench, reduced the score late in the game (93 ').
Too late to prevent Seattle fans from celebrating this new title. The first had already won against Toronto in 2016 (0-0, 5-4 t.a.b.), before the Canadians' revenge the following year (2-0). This time, home, Seattle had the beautiful.
